Working consistently from a solid nucleus of five musicians, the group has created an intriguing and idiosyncratic sound, achieved by an unfamiliar mix of strings, wind instruments and piano.
The chamber music group Het Collectief was founded in Brussels in 1998.
For its repertoire, Het Collectief returns to the Second Viennese School, the roots of modernism. Starting from this firm basis, it explores important twentieth- and twenty-fi rst-century repertoire, including the very latest experimental trends.
The group also creates a furore with daring crossovers between contemporary and traditional compositions and with adaptations of early music.
Alongside the many concert venues in Belgium, Het Collectief regularly takes its productions to concert halls abroad, including the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, Slovakia, Poland, Austria, Spain, Malta, Cyprus, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, South America (Peru and Brazil) and Asia (Hong Kong).
